Vertical Horizon returns Sept. 23 with its new studio album, "Go." The set is the RCA rock act's first since its 2000 major-label breakthrough, "Everything You Want." Produced by John Shanks, the 12-track "Go" will be preceded by first single "I'm Still Here," which arrived at radio last week.

The band has also set a string of concerts to promote the album's release, kicking off Aug. 15 in San Jose, Calif.

"Most of these songs have to do with taking steps, doing the things you want to do, experiencing what you need to, both positive and negative," says guitarist/vocalist Matt Scannell in a statement about the new album. "It's about living your life."

"Everything You Want" peaked at No. 40 on The Billboard 200, and featured three hit singles, including the title track (a No. 1 hit on Billboard's Hot 100), "You're a God" (No. 23) and "Best I Ever Had (Grey Sky Morning)" (No. 58). The album has sold 1.5 million copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan.
